Surface protection for a bathroom vanity

by Deepak
(Cambridhe, MA)


I am looking for the best practical surface protection for a vanity/sink surface in a bathroom environment.

I would imagine I need the typical protection as for a boat, but without any UV protection as this is indoors.

While the service will not be as harsh as a boat, I equally dont want to re-surface this every year.

I am very handy and have a lot of experience of apply various surface protections (but nothing to do with a boat or a wet environment).

Epoxy? Polyurethane? Resins? Combination of any/all?

Application would be on new kiln dried wood.

Total surface area is only about ten sq feet (its a small vanity).

Would I need a quart?

Any all help greatly appreciate.
Thank you
